Water for Cameroon - Tree Planter Voting Bot

in #nature3 years ago (edited)

Plant trees and get paid for it!

Plant one tree (1 STEEM) and your pocket will get heavier of 3$.

We launch Steemit Tree Planter Voting Bot to gain funding for conservation program to save Abongphen Highland Forest in Cameroon, in particular for tree planting. On the other hand the project will also support all Steemians (especially minnows) with our SP through automatic upvoting of user's posts. Additionally it could also help other conservation, development or charity programs/projects to fund raise their activities using the same approach. As it is usual to make things open source and transparent in decentralized world we are going to happily follow this tradition.

Inspiration

We got inspired by random whale vote bot thanks to it we finally figured out how it works – We are still really new on Steemit (two weeks+) so still trying to look around to know more. But more you know more you are finding out you do not know enough yet. Anyway the principle of @randowhale is quite simple. You send 2 Steems/ 2 SBD to its wallet with a memo of the link you want to have upvoted by the bot. Immediately after the money is transfared your post gets upvoted. With his SP over 600k even it would use just from 1 to 5% of voting power you could gain over 30$ from one vote if the bot slept well and has 100% voting power. All the revenue is going back to the community in steem power which is distributed to customers by other votes. Purely awesome.

As we mentioned above, the idea is going to help Steemians to get more revenue but also fund our conservation program in Cameroon. We want to do so because of serious threat the forest is facing. Without fast and proper action will be soon destroyed all. It will unfortunately means not only local extinction of so many endangered and endemic species, e.g. Nigeria-Cameroon chimpanzee subspecies or Bannerman's turaco but the entire area will lose only sources of drinking water it has. The place will just turn to desert.

We say no! Say it with us.

Let's plant trees to save Water for Cameroon with Steemit!

How it works?

I had to learn about bots and steem power much to come out with this plan how to plant millions of trees. It took me almost two days of researching your useful articles.

So here it is.

We want to revive the bot that will encourage you to plant trees. She (yes, she is she because we would like to focus on women empowerment in Cameroon as well) will pay you for it. She will act pretty much similar as randowhale. With the difference you could chose how much you want to contribute to tree planting. In fact, how many trees you wish to plant.

1 STEEM contributed = 1 TREE planted

Your choice will also determine how many percent of her voting power you receive. It will be a bit of a lottery. You will actually always have 50% chance to get the same percentage as the amount of trees you chose to plant.

1 tree = 1% of voting power, 2 trees = 2% of voting power and so on until 10 trees!

Even you contribute 1 STEEM still have some chance to get 10%.

Here is a proposed table with probabilities.

To make sure this tree planting program is sustainable and growing bigger, the first half of your contribution will be send directly to tree planting program in Cameroon and the second one to power up our bot lady. Therefore 50% is going to support conservation and 50% is an investment to future to keep you warm with our valuable votes.

Check this to see how the revenue for you will increase in 6 months thank to increasing SP of Tree Planter Voting Bot

According to our proposal we intend to 'plant' over 2000 trees every day. If we finally fully achieve our plan we would be able to gain 2220 STEEM every single day which allows us to plant the same amount of trees to restore Abongphen forest in Kedjom-Keku. At the same time we will power up our SP with 1110 SP. The lady bot is not going to waste time so it will be working 24/7 it means she would only use 20% of her voting power daily to be able to recover without nap. Therefor in six month we should be able to reach 202,020 STEEM POWER (we do not yet even count the SP and STEEM the bot is going to generate by posting her own stories (mostly reports of conservation activities in Cameroon). At that point we will begin to return the delegated STEEM POWER.

There we are coming to the most difficult point. To actually achieve this daring goal we need you Steemians. Especially we need big fish that are actually not even fish but whales. Well, to make it work, we'll need 10 whales, each delegated to us by 30,000 SP. Yes, we need no less than 300,000 SP. And that is not small number. We know. But we believe anything is possible if you really want.

We want a lot! Not only that. The forest needs us. Let's join forces to save our precious nature to help locals to improve in their living standards.

#So who is in?

First, transparency!

Every month, funds will be sent to Cameroon for tree planting and a report about the past month (there will be short weekly reports as well) activities will be published on Tree planter Steemit account. One of our main goals is to be 100% transparent. Let us try it.

Our suggestion

As we said our plan counts with over 2000 trees daily planted. If we assume more people will contributed 1 STEEM to plant 1 tree then people contributing for 10 trees the situation suppose to look like in bellow graph. But the distribution could be totally different. It is just up to you ladies and guys. But you can be sure you are actually going to be really paid for tree planting.

What we need to start?

First of all we need your attention, enthusiasm and constructive criticism.

Secondly, someone who will help us to program our lady bot.

Thirdly 300.000 SP delegated.

Any ideas are very welcomed.

Yes very ambitious. I will be keeping an eye on this.

thanks, we are really curious whether we will finally succeed.

Welcome. I think it's a great thing you're doing and I really do admire it.

Congratulations! This post has been upvoted from the communal account, @minnowsupport, by Kedjom-Keku from the Minnow Support Project. It's a witness project run by aggroed, ausbitbank, teamsteem, theprophet0, and someguy123. The goal is to help Steemit grow by supporting Minnows and creating a social network. Please find us in the Peace, Abundance, and Liberty Network (PALnet) Discord Channel. It's a completely public and open space to all members of the Steemit community who voluntarily choose to be there.

If you like what we're doing please upvote this comment so we can continue to build the community account that's supporting all members.

Great idea. :) I followed and will upvote your posts when I see them.

PS I admit I am a lil skeptical, there's a lot of people trying to game the system.. But, I want to help and it's not much to click an upvote button if I see someone claiming to be doing a good cause.

Quite ambitious project. I'm all in to support it. Upvoted, resteemed and promoted! Good luck Kedjom-Keku!

Thanks @bluudz. Once you want to really achieve something, nothing can stop you.
